Working at a York County icon: ‘I always wanted to be a Maple Donuts girl, and here I am’

York County, Pa., has long played host to business and other venues that are, well, distinctly York County. In the past, we had Bury’s Burgers, Melvin’s Drive-In, Playland, White Oak Park and the Shady Dell. Today, we have going businesses like Rutter’s and Bricker’s fries and Smittie’s Pretzels and Maple Donuts that span decades. Maple Donuts is, in fact, expanding, looking to expand its Springettsbury Township facility. York Daily Record/Sunday News photographer Chris Dunn spent overnight at Maple’s Springettsbury shop the other day and got some neat photos and slice-of-life story. One quote from Maple Donut retail clerk Teresa Mckeown shows how the shop bridges generations: ‘I always wanted to be a Maple Donuts girl, and here I am.’
